Africa as a cause

As we all know Africa is the new pink. And any celebrity worth their ink, is down with Africa.
Madonna, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bono, Kate Moss all love Africa.Does anyone see a common thread among the list?
To help these dimwits in their "it’s all about me Africa campaign", why don’t we assign them a country in Africa as their cause ‘de jour’. I know, I know, Brad and Angelina already took historically rich and literally starving though not anorexic Ethiopia. But there still are some good countries to be had. Madonna could have fascinating Zambia or maybe Uganda (but there is this long standing civil war in the north but more opportunity to make the issues about her).
Kate Moss could take Sudan. Sudan is a country filled with very tall people and there has to be a model somewhere that Kate can discover and take all the credit for delivering her out of a life of poverty. As for Bono what the hell, he can have all East Africa since he just looks great in Prada sunglasses (I prefer Gucci myself)- the kids in Tanzania love that look.

Unfortunately they could not find any Africans for the cover. I'm sure they made a huge effort.
